ACS National Awards
The ACS National Awards program is designed to encourage the advancement of chemistry in all its branches, to support research in chemical science and industry, and to promote the careers of chemists.
Your opportunity to highlight outstanding work in the chemical sciences and chemical education is here! By nominating a peer or colleague for a 2022 ACS National Awards, you'll help recognize that person's extraordinary accomplishments and inspire other scientists and students to strive for excellence in their own work, in support of each other and the larger chemistry enterprise. The nomination period will close on November 1, 2020 and winners will be announced in August 2021.
A. Paul Alivisatos, the University of California, Berkeley, scientist is the Samsung Distinguished Professor of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and a professor of chemistry and materials science and engineering, as well as the university’s executive vice chancellor and provost. He is also director emeritus of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and the founding editor in chief of Nano Letters, published by the American Chemical Society. Alivisatos will receive the 2021 Priestley Medal, the American Chemical Society’s highest honor. View C&EN article.
